callbacks behavior after movie restart

I am using a quicktime clip with callbacks.  On each callback, a 
message is sent and a line of text is displayed in a field, all very 

on message1
put "blah" in fld "blah"
end message1

on message2
put "something" in fld "blah"
end message2

When the user stops the movie, the current text remains in the text 
field as it should, but when the user starts the movie again, the 
engine will "fast forward" through all the text lines from the 
beginning of the clip until the current text, displaying all of them 
for a split second.  Is this a bug and is there a workaround? How do I 
avoid all the previous callback messages being sent when the movie 
starts playing from a certain point?

All best,
